O Holy Souls,
as one truly devoted to you
I promise never to forget you,
and continually to pray
to the Most High for your release.
I beseech you
to respond to this offering
which I make to you,
and obtain for me from God,
with Whom you are so powerful
on behalf of the living,
that I may be freed
from all dangers of soul
I beg both for myself
and for my relations and benefactors,
friends and enemies,
pardon for our sins,
and the grace
of perseverance in good,
whereby we may save our souls.
Obtain for us peace of heart;
assist us in all our actions;
succor us promptly
in all our spiritual and temporal needs;
console and defend us in our dangers.
Pray for the Supreme Pontifff,
for the exaltation of Holy Church,
for peace between nations,
and for tranquility among peoples;
and grant that we may one day
all rejoice together in paradise.
